Engraving the £5 notes – Presentation

Tuesday, September 12, 2017
3:30 pm - 4:45 pm

The artist Graham Short, who recently caused a stir by engraving the face of Jane Austen on £5 notes, explains how he works on such a tiny scale. ‘I go to greater lengths than anyone else in the world. Working from midnight to 5.00 am, to avoid vibration from passing traffic, I lower my pulse to 20 beats a minute and … engrave between heartbeats when I am perfectly still.
